Ground Zero September 10, 2011

All photos taken today, Saturday September 10, 2011. Resampled down to VGA. Click any to enlarge.

I did a complete circle of Ground Zero this morning. These pictures are in the order in which they were taken.

In the pre-dawn light, a cruise ship approaches Manhattan. The Freedom Tower was done up in red, white, and blue lights.

  2. I was surprised by the lack of law enforcement in your pictures. There were a few police cars, and it looks like 4 soldiers standing one of the cars in one picture, but that seemed about all. On the 1 o’clock news (7 am your time) this afternoon on TF1 (the biggest privately owned French TV channel), they showed video of police and especially military around the site, which they said was closed to traffic within blocks because of suspected terrorism attempts. I don’t see any of that in your pics.

    What is the meaning of the pale stripes on the flags in the 4th, 5th and 6th pictures?

    Please don’t go anywhere that might be unsafe tomorrow, ok?

      I was there at like 6:30 in the frikkin morning. There were cops everywhere. I didn’t want photos of them. I took photos of barricades but didn’t run them. Who wants to see that? The pale stripes are the names of those who died. I don’t know if I’ll go there tomorrow even though I’ll be in the area again.
